How to call BDLC Updates with NINTEX Workflows
The Layer2 Business Data List Connector for SharePoint solves many issues that still exist with SharePoint out-of-the-box external data
integration. It makes it as easy as possible to connect native SharePoint lists
to almost any external data source, codeless and bi-directional. All native
SharePoint list features are available for the connected list.
When using NINTEX workflows in
SharePoint you can easily make use of BDLC updates to synchronize your lists
with your external data source.
You can call the bdlcupdate.aspx application page within a NINTEX workflow
using a "Web Request Task".
Example call to be used in "Web Request Task":
In some cases, it may be necessary to use a local URL with the
bdlcupdate.aspx call instead of the Web URL (as proxy server may deny the
request resulting in a 403 Forbidden error).
